Retirement village

An increasingly popular concept, but unfortunately lacking any single, clear definition. Essentially anything from an estate to a full blown village-sized development of bungalows, flats or houses, intended for occupation by older people. Some retirement villages include a care home alongside independent living and assisted living properties, and most of the larger ones include leisure and hobby facilities as well as restaurants, shops, hairdressing salon, etc.
